The 25th European Medical Informatics Conference (MIE2014) organized by the European Federation for Medical Informatics (EFMI) and the Turkish Medical Informatics Association (TurkMIA), was held on August 31st. In total, 536 participants from over 45 countries attended MIE 2014 in Istanbul. It was the first time that Turkey hosted MIE which took place in one of the most beautiful and fascinating congress centers, Halic Congress Center. MIE 2014 was a great opportunity to the participants gathering in Istanbul to participate in sessions and discussions on best strategies and skills for managing the projects and initiatives in medical informatics.
Some of the major highlights of this conference were interactive panels, workshops and oral presentations which provided a platform to the professionals to present their research results. We believe knowledge received from the conference and Istanbul memories will be very beneficial and the unforgettable for the attendees.
The conference book which includes full text of all the presentations (about 1300 pages) was prepared by IOS press as open access. It is also indexed by Medline. In addition, all full texts and the presentations will be accessible on the web site. Turkish Medical Informatics Association will keep the web site active until the end of next MIE 2015 conference on May 2015 in Madrid. Then the content will be reachable from the EFMI and IOS press web site.
